A lifetime ago, you were the talk of the town,
But lately you’ve noticed that you’ve gone unnoticed,
And you’re a stranger to their attention.
They pulled the carpet right from under
Your fading feet;
How could they?
Those moments when time was on your side
And they were your friends–
Those moments are long gone.
Where’s your place in the stars?
That dream is all you’ve ever known,
And you don’t know how to live
With the realization that you’ve fallen down into
How bitter, How bitter!
America, you’re no longer in your prime!
You’re no longer their fancy,
And they don’t even remember your name.
You now see that you’re not as
as you thought you were,
and your jokes aren’t as
as you’d always imagined.
